Wonderful pulp sci-fi fun. This is a direct ancestor of Star Wars, more than any other single influence. And while it is pulp, there is some real social commentary going on that makes this worth reading today. Sure, the attitude towards Indians may not be as enlightened as ours seems today, but the core thesis of ERB is one that embraces and exhorts all mankind to treat others with respect and fairness. This is a fun celebration of individual freedoms, romantic love, faithful friendship, and heroism.
